Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is used to examine the inside of the uterus. The procedure involves inserting a thin, flexible tube with a camera and lights into the uterus through the vagina. Hysteroscopy is used to diagnose and treat conditions such as abnormal uterine bleeding, fibroids, polyps, or infertility. The procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis and can be performed with local anesthesia or sedation. Recovery time is usually minimal, with most women able to return to their normal activities within a few days after the procedure.
